John Galloway
Basketmaker




I produce ornamental and functional willow baskets using a variety of traditional basket-weaving techniques.

I use coal-tar indigo and vat dyes to add colour to my baskets. A wide range of colours and shades can be created along the lenth of the willow, blending in with the natural colour of the willow.

Used randomly, the dyed willow can produce speckled and mottled effects. Applied systematically, dyed willow can create patterned "colour-and-weave" effects that may produce stripes, checks, spirals, and motifs.
